Read full description of the books:There is a family which owns dozens of rental buildings in the nearest urban centre to where I live, and even though they are millionaires, several hundred times over, they won't spend a nickel to keep out the rats and cockroaches. Every city has landowners like these, people who are swimming in wealth and yet are absolute and contemptible misers, hording their wealth, equating their lives of deprivation, and the deprivations they force upon others, as emblems of virtue.
The Poon Family is one such Hong Kong dynasty in Timothy Mo's satirical comedy, and when Wallace Nolasco marries into it, instead of finding himself rolling in wealth, prestige and power, he winds up at the bottom of their nasty little pecking order. Fortunately, like the legendary monkey king, he is quite a clever fellow.
